A Firesign Chat


||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for February 02, 2012 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Janitor into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mutters something about 7:07 PM, then departs.
Janitor: here? Well You people got trouble , I don’t know why you people seem to think this is magic. It’s just this little chromium switch here . . . My, you people are so superstitious . . .
Janitor: Well, do you know about the gatherin’? I said, do you know about the gatherin’? I say the gatherin’ of the Revolutionary Forces! Well, that’s gonna be at Reverend Willie’s pad--at three o’clock this afternoon--and be on time . . .
Janitor: Ha, ha, ho! You bet, Dear Friends, it is going to be all right. It’s going to be all right tonight, here at the Powerhouse Church of the Presumptuous Assumption of the Blinding Light
Janitor: Don't forget to bring that dead groundhog, too!!
||||||||| Around 7:13 PM, Janitor walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 02, 2012 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies cease in through the front door at 9:00 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
cease: this rooom does need a janitor.
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'Dexter Fong', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:01 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Dexter Fong: Hey Cat
cease: a lot more than it needs jan and dean.
cease: hey dex
Dexter Fong: Jan and Dean were here?
cease: i just tried to say a few funny things on a chat that takes place during the live streaming of a vegas programme.
cease: no body laughed. alas
cease: they're still slaving away in surf city.
cease: endlessly surfing the net for a way out
Dexter Fong: Or dying on dead man's curve
Dexter Fong: You're not in Vegas yet are you?
cease: not til monday
Dexter Fong: For how long?
cease: til sunday. 6 nights
Dexter Fong: Wow!
cease: serous food intake
Dexter Fong: Major culinary tour
cease: hope i don't od on food
Dexter Fong: Me too =))
cease: l'atelier, milos, le cirque, julian serrano, the tiny restaurant called e that nly takes 8 people, etc
Dexter Fong: Where's "e"
cease: i see trump and romney are in vegas. good reason to avoid the place
cease: it's tucked inside of Jaleo, jose andre's tapas place in the cosmoplitan
cease: really hard to get a reservation, like per se
cease: if you read my blog of the feb trip, not at all happy with jaleo. blog post was called Say it ain't so, Jose
Dexter Fong: I assume Vegas has always had a couple of fine restaurants, but it's really seemed to have taken a big jump in the last few years
cease: when i met him in may, i asked if i could get into e. apparently asking works
cease: true dex, that's why i go there now.
cease: would never have imagined going there before my recent interest in food
cease: i don't exacltly enjoy being hugged by large spanish men. small japanese women work much better for me
cease: i dont think this vegas food thinig will last very long.
Dexter Fong: Is that beating and hugging part of the initiation?
cease: lol
cease: scarey news about israel planning to attack iran
cease: will only keep the current ass holes in power longer
Dexter Fong: You know, I think the vegas food thing *will* last because there are enough people with a lot of money and upscale interests to keep them
Dexter Fong: Does Vegas have a really good restaurant critic do you know?
cease: there was a restaurnat at wynn called Alex. i had some of his food in a vegan event, never ate at his place but heard it was one of thebest in town. he's gone now.
cease: same with charlier trotter and daniel beloud, two of my faves
Dexter Fong: Well...vegan...yah know?
cease: at least 3. i have a new book called Eating Las Vegas, the 50 essential restaurants, by 3 critics, 2 of whom i've been in touch with
Dexter Fong: Beloud has recently opened several places on the west side near Lincoln Center
cease: one of the authors, whose tv shows Top of the Food Chain and Dining Invasions i enjoy, said that his source at the wynn said they kill tons of sharks for shark's fin soup for chinese new years for their chinese high rollers
cease: the speech he gave at the event i attended, shaky vid available on my site, wynn raves about what an animal lover he is.
Dexter Fong: Yeah, same hear in NYC for the big Chinese banquets =/
cease: yeah daniel loves nyc.
cease: i took doc and lili to daniel and we had a fine time.mostly drinking
cease: always works for me
Dexter Fong: Lunch or dinner?
cease: dinner. dont think daniel is open for lunch
Dexter Fong: at daniel?
Dexter Fong: ah ok
cease: where is everyone tonight?
Dexter Fong: Yeah
Dexter Fong: Where is *anyone* tonight
cease: maybe they've all gone to vegas
Dexter Fong: or to the myune
cease: i now lots of people go to vegas for the superbowl, for some reason
Dexter Fong: Get a legal bet down?
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Elayne inside, makes a note of the time (9:21 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
cease: maybe that's it
Elayne: Evenin' Cat! Evenin' Dex!
cease: hi el
cease: not so well attended tonight
Dexter Fong: Hi Elayne
Elayne: Looks like everyone saw their shadows this morning and they're all afraid to come out this evening.
cease: maybe that's it
Elayne: Buncha pussy groundhogs.
cease: how are things in nyc?
Dexter Fong: Pussy groundhogs is what they refer to the female of the species
Elayne: It's the city so NYC, they named it TWYC. Or something like that.
Elayne: How are things in NYC, Dex? How's your walking ability at present? I walked from my office to your old work area at Times Square yesterday, it was so lovely.
cease: you listen to harry shearer's weekly show Le Show? he calls newcorp Nice Corp
cease: and he works for murdock at The Simpsons
Elayne: I don't listen to the radio, and I have yet to listen to any of the podcasts I still download.
Dexter Fong: E: My planar flexor whatever is still bothersome
cease: i met im once when i was in la taping voices for Neal Amid. he sort of asked me for a job, as if i could afford him
Elayne: Aw crud, Dex, sorry to hear it. How goes the Search for the Mysterious Phone Number?
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and llanwydd gets out at 9:26 PM.
llanwydd: good evening
Dexter Fong: If I don't locate it by the coming weekend I'll call you next week
Elayne: Evenin' Llan!
Dexter Fong: Hi llan
cease: if i'm alive/healthy at dex's age, i'll be astonished, delighted
cease: hi llan
Elayne: That's fine, Dex.
llanwydd: you did Neal in LA?
cease: how is florida, llan?
Dexter Fong: E: It's highly perplexing. I know for certain the stuff wasn't thrown out -that's not our way =)- and things are not so disorganized that it's like total chaos....
cease: a lot of it, yes, llan. my producer for neal lives in la
llanwydd: florida is amazingly warm for winter
cease: the republicans finaly left?
Dexter Fong: right
cease: no one has any friends on their right
Dexter Fong: sound off !!
llanwydd: I have some
Dexter Fong: Oh llan, you're *so* contrary
Dexter Fong: that's with a =))
Dexter Fong: belated, I know =)
cease: i hope i can get the ipad to work and i can chat next thurs, if there's anyone here to chat with
Elayne: Tween emailed me a couple of times during the wee, presumably to extol the virtues of Ron Paul.
Elayne: That would be nice, Cat.
Dexter Fong: He emailed yourbath room?
llanwydd: see that. we do have some friends on the right
Dexter Fong: lol llan
llanwydd: ron paul is a piece of work
llanwydd: but I still like the libertarian party
Dexter Fong: oh it's a swell idea llan, it's just a couple hundred years too late
llanwydd: what's so outmoded about the sovereignty of the people?
Dexter Fong: I find it interesting that these so called libertarian philosophies always seem to need the inclusion of an under class
cease: we are the .99%
Elayne: I tend not to be thrilled with any philosophy that's more about Keeping Them Out than Bringing Us All Together.
Dexter Fong: wow, you mean we're almost 1%ters?
llanwydd: that's not the way I learned the libertarian ideal
cease: i have a cousin in la who was taking feminist studies at ucla when i was there taking something else
Dexter Fong: You got any left?
Elayne: The libertarians, like the Republicans and, to a lesser extent, the Democrats... all these movements have been co-opted by the right, at least in the past generation or so.
cease: she finally left the programme because it was building walls against other humans, not brinigng them together
Elayne: Oh, before I forget, and sign off for the evening to go fold laundry (Exciting!), I wanted to pass along a silly site.
Elayne: Shakespearean Light Bulb Jokes. Because Elayne needs to be the target audience for SOMEthing: http://blog.shakespearegeek.com/2012/01/shakespearean-light-bulb-jokes-guest.html
Dexter Fong: Ah...'tis the east; and juliet is the light bulb
Elayne: Next week, all!
Dexter Fong: Night E
||||||||| At 9:38 PM, Elayne vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
cease: funny stuff, el
cease: reminds me of the xmas play in the dooneseberry tv show
cease: "and the baby jesus will be played by a 40 watt bulb"
Dexter Fong: all the halos are played by authentic halogen light bulbs
cease: you see that show, llan and dex? from 77 or 78
Dexter Fong: no, don't think so
cease: el told me she saw it at a festival in nyc
cease: i actually saw the live tv broadcast
llanwydd: doesn't sound familiar
cease: one of the best half hours of tv i've ever seen
Dexter Fong: I never heard of it before
llanwydd: I just looked at those shakespeare jokes. quite entertaining. especially for someone who knows shakespeare like I do
llanwydd: I have played some of those parts
llanwydd: the only one I didn't get was the Earl of Oxford. I'm kind of embarrassed to say I don't remember him
Dexter Fong: I once played filoment, in three thre-ways from Mazda
cease: phil, fil, philll and filll
llanwydd: the one I like best though, is "How many Pericleses does it take to change a light bulb?" "I don't know. I'm not familiar with the play."
cease: the 4 or 5 crazee guise
Dexter Fong: any phffille you wante
llanwydd: Phil A. Bowl
Dexter Fong: with Cream 'o Wheat
cease: Eric Clapton as Wheat
llanwydd: ?
Dexter Fong: really?
Dexter Fong: I was thinking more of Lester Scruggs
cease: reminds me of the end of Love and Death, where Dianne Keaton says Wheat
llanwydd: I thought that was somewhere around the middle
cease: have to use that line about death being worse than the chicken at kresky's restaurant in a reivew at some point. great line
Dexter Fong: Woody Allen?
llanwydd: that film borrowed a lot from Ingmar Bergman
cease: great flick. it's on youtube
Dexter Fong: Homage, llan
llanwydd: woody had to be a big bergman fan
cease: yes the wheat things were intesnely bermanesque
Dexter Fong: I'm sure
llanwydd: a lot from tolstoy as well
llanwydd: I've used the "religious conversion" speech from that film as an audition piece
cease: al the russian big wigs
llanwydd: it usually goes over well
Dexter Fong: And the Swedish periwigs
cease: hadnt seen it since it came out. a treat to see again after 37 years
llanwydd: and the mexican earwigs
cease: i think his next flick was Sleeper, still my fave by him
Dexter Fong: Not the mexican earwigs again!
llanwydd: no, love and death was the one after sleeper
cease: no, it's the mexican jumping eawigs. they do a mean jib
cease: aha
cease: i saw sleeper in a basement theatre in the city of hamamatsu, japan double billed with pasolini's 1001 arabian nights
Dexter Fong: I don't like the earwigs but i do like the cut of their jib
cease: almost too much cinema for one day
llanwydd: then he started getting more serious with Annie Hall and then he went totally Bergman with Interiors
cease: yes i thought he went to hell pretty much after annie hall.
llanwydd: I thought Interiors was good
Dexter Fong: I much liked his last one "After Midnight in paris"
cease: it would be difficult to descibe how much i detested his barcelona flick, but i do want to see the new one about paris in the 20s
cease: yes that's it, dex. will rent it when i get back from vegas
cease: when fumiyo and i spent 5 days in barcelona, we serously considered moving there.
llanwydd: I recently watched "Scoop" which was set in England. that was a pretty interesting film
Dexter Fong: What was "scoop" llan
cease: great brit comic novel of the same name.
llanwydd: why? what was so great about barcelona?
cease: wodehouse maybe?
cease: very funny, about a journalist in africa
cease: we just felt really at home there. it was endlessly interesting
llanwydd: Scoop was a Woody Allen film, Dex. came out about 5 years ago I think
cease: it was also our first exposure to tapas, which we love
cease: and all that gaudi, the main reason we wanted to go there.
llanwydd: I wish I had your kind of money, cat
Dexter Fong: Is that the one with scarlett johanson in which she gets killed/murdered?
cease: no you dont, llan
llanwydd: I won't tell you if she gets killed or not, dex. you want to see it.
cease: scarlett is abused in the flick, but that's just after the lens cap came off
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Dexter Fong: llan: Well that's it, I think I may have seen it so i need a few hints about it
cease: loved her in Lost in Translation, but that's because how beaitifully the rather ugly city of tokyo came off in the flick
llanwydd: okay, dex. woody plays an american magician performing in england
Dexter Fong: Nope, don't think I have seen it, thanks llan
llanwydd: the only woody allen film I ever saw on a big screen was Radio Days
cease: one thing i learned from woody is how to pronounce Rao's
llanwydd: I saw that in newport, rhode island
cease: klok's state
Dexter Fong: with a lot of sailors?
llanwydd: unless you count the time I was in a car driving past a drive-in that was showing Play it Again, Sam when I was a kid
llanwydd: I saw woody walking down the street but that was all I saw of the film on a big screen
cease: there's a line from a baudelliar poem that is similar. in english, it's "an sailors, and many others"
llanwydd: is that where klok was from?>
cease: don tknow where he was from but he died in rhode island, lived there for quite some time
llanwydd: you might say I was a sailor. in that I worked as a fisherman until I started managing an arabic restaurant
Dexter Fong: Hold the fort boys, I'm gonna reconoiter me some refill
llanwydd: ask catherwood to get it for you
||||||||| Catherwood gets it for you.
cease: i love to eat fish, but couldn't catch them
llanwydd: but I remember seeing the "squids" on Thames Street
llanwydd: a very good friend of mine is the academic dean of the naval academy preparatory school (NAPS) where the squids are
cease: i gather you're not talknig of calamari?
llanwydd: I worked on lobster boats and sometimes "trap" boats that caught fish in nets
cease: bycatch?
Dexter Fong: I knew a gal used to work on the fishin boats....she had a perfect stern
llanwydd: not exactly calamari. squids is a term used for navy men
cease: culd you do howard from it?
Dexter Fong: I culd and much Moore
llanwydd: squids used to come into my restaurant all the time. one time they got high in the bathroom and stunk up the whole place. I'll never forget
cease: i have vague memory of bw gary moore show, 50s
cease: remember i thought it was very clever.
cease: i htink woody allen wrote for it
llanwydd: wasn't gary moore the "to tell the truth" guy?
Dexter Fong: Cat: He was..show was a very loose entity, mostly all of it ad lib
cease: not sure. this was a sketch comedy show
cease: you would remember it much more clearly, dex. i was 6 or 7 or something
Dexter Fong: LLan: Moore did do quiz shows so quite possible
cease: i didnt watch tv until i was 5. we didnt have it in my home town
llanwydd: some of my very earliest memories are of television
cease: my parents mostly mainlined really violent shows, westerns, war shows and crime show
Dexter Fong: I didn't watch tv untill I was thirteen, nobody had it then
cease: i was so happy when comedy came on
llanwydd: I think my earliest memory is of me standing next to a television that was about twice as tall as me
Dexter Fong: Maybe it was on a box like allan ladd
llanwydd: comedy was my thing, too. especially soupy sales. he was the absolute funniest
cease: he was great
cease: dont remember anything about im at all, just laughing at his show
Dexter Fong: Mike & Ike, you never saw a funnier jew or a funnier mick
llanwydd: don't remember them
Dexter Fong: And dem minstial shows, dey was really funny
llanwydd: I remember the mike and ike candies
cease: dex, when we were at per se and you had the salmon cones and i had the artichoke cones,
Dexter Fong: Same guys, vaudeville died so they went into the candy business
Dexter Fong: Yes Cat:
cease: i may have told you that it flashed me back to xmas 56 van nuys intaliant restaurant my parents took me to. saw dust on the floor
llanwydd: so you remember vaudeville, dex. I would have loved to see a vaudeville show
cease: must have been the smell of the saw dust/tomato sauce was triggered by something in the cone
Dexter Fong: Perhaps you were in a carpenters shop
cease: i know it's what keller does
cease: lol
Dexter Fong: Puts saw dust in his food
cease: fave painting, joseph the carpenter by de la tour.
llanwydd: I'll have to check that out. not familiar with de la tour
Dexter Fong: I can't limit myself that way...far too many extraordinary works of art
cease: its in the louvre
cease: yes, hard to pick a fave. when i saw las maninas in the prado, that almost became my fave
llanwydd: my favorite paintings are by magritte
cease: and one is afected differently by the same painting at dif times
llanwydd: I used to be a salvador dali fanatic in my teen years
cease: love magritte. doc tech and i have been working ona magrite-like image
cease: mayve i can access it. inspired by a meal in vegas where i'll be returning soon
Dexter Fong: Magritte depicted as a light bulb, hovering over himself, ad infinitum
llanwydd: ever win a lot of money in vegas, cat?
Dexter Fong: Da Cat does not gamble
cease: i have never bet, llan.
cease: it wouod never occur to me as something to do. like attending a bull fight
llanwydd: I've never been in a casino. don't care to.
Dexter Fong: Pretty soon, government will make attendance at a casino once a year, mandatory
cease: i have to walk thru them to get to the restaurants. seem filled with mesmerized people
cease: at least around some of the gambling sites, maybe dice or sometrhing, it seems more a group actrivity, people celebrate each others successes
Dexter Fong: Those were prolly the people coming out of the hypnotists show
cease: lol dex
llanwydd: I saw something about a huge buffet in vegas on one of those cable channels like the food channel
cease: no its like the peole have merged with the machines, the borg
Dexter Fong: llan: All the major hotel/casinos have a buffet
cease: ive nver been to a buffet in vegas. i go there for the specialtiy food
Dexter Fong: Room service? (nudge nudge)
llanwydd: the furthest I've ever travelled to eat out was 100 miles
cease: never a service
cease: small quantities of very interesting things done to vegetables, seafood
cease: molecularly reconceived
llanwydd: frankenfood?
Dexter Fong: Cloned food
cease: no, put through processors of one sort or another, turned gas, liquied, solid, brave new states
Dexter Fong: I find myself liking those almost arid martinis served in a cool bath of liquid nutrogen
cease: apparently all my bevies at this one restaurnat come in the form of frozen balls
Dexter Fong: sodium free of course
llanwydd: a glass of meat and a piece of wine?
Dexter Fong: And anit-oxidants up the ass
cease: i discovered the afagato on my last trip. the nitrogen frozen baileys and coffee
Dexter Fong: cut me off a slob o that coffee
cease: exactly llan.
cease: very much where these kinda chefs have been going in the past 20 years or so
cease: apparently afrogato means drowned in italian, a commone bevvie there
Dexter Fong: well, lately yes
llanwydd: I forgotto
Dexter Fong: the drowning that is
Dexter Fong: a common "bevvie" I think you put it?
cease: some article in tv guide about it. didnt save
llanwydd: well, I'm checking out. see you next week.
Dexter Fong: sorry
llanwydd: nite
||||||||| llanwydd says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, llanwydd exits at 10:37 PM.
Dexter Fong: Night llan, and saute a squid for me
Dexter Fong: I think we should call a meeting of the membership committee
cease: by llan
cease: not enough members to have a committee
Dexter Fong: Then called a quorum, or a maven or something

Dexter Fong: kinda yeah

cease: hope they find fresno and bbq sauce
Dexter Fong wonders what they possibly could have made from the RFK assassination
cease: i'm surprised they didnt keep copies, as they were def into fame
cease: the play predicted it, and then he was killed a few days later
cease: ossman talked of it on a recent rfo
Dexter Fong: They probobly were going to but someone got stoned and forgot something =))
cease: a good desrciption of an era, dex
Dexter Fong: what era we're we talking about man
